His 130 not out proved the cornerstone of Australia's revival to 318 all out in their first innings at the Windsor Park Stadium after leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo had reduced them to 126 for six in mid-afternoon replying to the home side's first day total of 148.
Deflated by their opponents' rearguard which saw 192 runs added for the last four wickets, the West Indies lost both openers -- Kraigg Braithwaite and Shai Hope -- in stumbling to 25 for two in their second innings at the close, still trailing by 145 runs going into day three.
Bishoo finished with career-best Test figures of six for 80, along the way becoming only the second West Indies leg-spinner to reach 50 wickets in Test cricket.
However his effectiveness in the latter stages of the Australian rearguard was reduced by the recurrence of a finger injury to his bowling hand, causing him to leave the field for treatment on two occasions.
Voges, at 35 years and 243 days, the oldest player ever to score a hundred in his first Test match, was already causing the Caribbean side considerable discomfort after the morning and early-afternoon clatter of wickets.
